According to reports, the fight started after the speaker, Joe Osei-Owusu left his chair to cast his vote in favour of the bill, a decision that was said to have angered the minority in the house.

The lawmakers, as reported by TSB News, tried to prevent the speaker from casting his vote, arguing he was supposed to be neutral based on the house’s standing order.
